Tuesday, May 17 | Noon-1 p.m. | Intercultural Diversity Center, 2100 Student Center
(Cultural Exploration /Educational Engagement)

 

The Intercultural Diversity Center will continue its TEDTalk Tuesday Series in observance of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by featuring, “My Escape from North Korea.” As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 1990s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope—and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.
